In today’s video I answer a reader question about drop ball mechanics.
I got a question a while ago from a reader who was curious about Jennie Finch’s screwball, specifically wanting to know if it was safer on the elbow than the more widely taught screwball (which is also the one we teach). I want to dispel some myths about screwballs and drops, and shed some light for any pitchers who may rely on these pitches and experience some elbow soreness.
Two readers had questions pertaining to my landing position in my last video. Watch for clarification!
